How brass instruments work

A comment from a teacher about a nice lecture on how brass instruments work. I’ve seen Brian Holmes speak and he is very good!

If you have a broadband connection you can hear and see a great lecture by Brian Holmes on how brass musical instruments work. It really is very good. I saw this presentation at the Northern California American Association of Physics Teachers convention a last year, although this presentation was given at Fermilab. The presentation should be at a level that everyone can enjoy. <http://vmsstreamer1.fnal.gov/VMS_Site_03/Lectures/Colloquium/041006Holmes/vf001.htm>

Here, too, is a presentation by Brian Holmes on Science Friday. This episode also includes more on the physics of music.
